In a previous response I was asked to mention the error message that
tortoise is displaying.

So, here is the whole story:

The error message I get back when I attempt to use Tortoise to browse my
remote repository is as follows:

"Can't connect to host '': A connection attempt failed because
the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or
established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond."

My svnserver is running on The repository is at
C:\svn-repos\code. The url I am using in the tortoise repo browser is

I can successfully run the following two commands on the server side svn
info svn:\\\code and svn list svn:\\ locally,

I can successfully run the tortoise repo browser from the server locally
with the following url: svn:\\

I can ping the server from the client and I can ping the
client from the server.

I see the aforementioned error message even when I turn off the firewall on
both the client and the server.

If anyone can provide some ideas on what to do next, I would be grateful.
